LOS ANGELES (AP) — Malcolm Brogdon of Virginia, Buddy Hield of Oklahoma, Brice Johnson of North Carolina, Tyler Ulis of Kentucky and Michigan State’s Denzel Valentine are among 10 players chosen for the John R. Wooden Award All-American team.

The team was announced Monday. The others are Grayson Allen of Duke, Kris Dunn of Providence, Perry Ellis of Kansas, Yogi Ferrell of Indiana and Georges Niang of Iowa State.

All 10 members of the team have maintained at least a cumulative 2.0 grade point average and are making progress toward graduation, two components of the award that were insisted upon by the late UCLA coach, whose name is on the award.

Brogdon is the only player who was selected to last year’s All-American team. Hield and Johnson will play in this weekend’s Final Four in Houston.

The award will be presented to the men’s and women’s college basketball players of the year on April 8 in Los Angeles.
